There is still one thing for the 49ers to play for this season. Frank Gore is very close to another 1,000 yard season, which will not only put him in an elite group, but will help show that he is still one of the best backs in the NFL.

Rumors are flying that the San Francisco 49ers might trade Head Coach Jim Harbaugh to the Oakland Raiders, and that’s just the icing on the cake for this Bay Area rivalry.
